Racist Cookies- In honor of Obama

This was a story put out by The Fox News Network (a few weeks ago)

It appears that a Greenwich Village bakery popular with celebrities and shows like Sex and the City has outraged neighbors by selling a "Drunken Negro Face" cookie in, um, "honor" of President Obama. [Video below.] A shocked customer tells My Fox NY that Ted Kefalinos, proprietor of Lafayette French Pastry, asked her, "Would you like some drunken negro heads to go with your coffee? They're in honor of our new president. He's following in the same path of Abraham Lincoln; he will get his."

The more things change...the more things stay the same. Iriegal just shaking her head.

Arnold Diaz broke the story; now he reports on the public's response to the baker and what he has been going through since then: Protests, angry phone calls, response videos on YouTube, sensitivity training, and even a visit from the Secret Service.

The more we progress, the more things stay the same. This is sickening.
